Yes, it becomes free for 6 months, or reduced to $20/month forever.
Just call and menu yourself over to "cancel service". It will put you in Retention department. They will ask you why you want to cancel. Say you've priced it out through other carriers and you have determined you're paying too much. If they ask you how much you want to be spending give them a number (I don't know how much you're paying now, I said $100 would be nice since I have 4 lines and Metro PoS has 4 lines for $100). Don't give them too much, they will do most of the talking if you just say "Please tell me how much it will be to break contract". If it works be sure to rep the OP. IMHO he deserves it for sharing this.
We're paying about $240/mo for 4 iPhones, 3/4 of them are unlimited data for 1400 mins with unlimited family messaging. Thanks for the advice, I'll try it out.. but if you have any more, feel free to chime in before I make a fool of myself!
I have two phones, with data (iPhone 4s and Galaxy note) on a family plan. I called in, got to retention department, told them "Im thinking about switching because MetroPCS has better rates", the CSR looked at my account, and said -- hey, i can give you 30 bucks off.
Thank you so much! I called and told them i heard about this promotion and that i planned on cancelling one of my lines. He asked why and I told him it was costing too much (even though the line was only 9.99/month). The rep then gave me the 2 options, 6 months free or $20/month. Took the 6 free months and was told it will start next month. Took a total of 7 mins. Yay!
I was not able to get $20 Plan. But they offered me 5000 Free Roll-Over Minutes, 6 Months Text+unlimited mobile Plan free and $50 Credit .
I have 5 lines all on contract ending next year Jun.

Just got it too. Had to act like I was concerned about new plans coming out and the price of my bill. I finally said, "Are there any current promotions that could help me out"? She said, Oh I see you have family messaging on your plan, I can give you that for free for 6 months.
I'll take it. Those dirty punks at ATT and Verizon are looking for ANY way to screw us!
